On Demand movie highlights

Think Like a Man ½

(Encore on Comcast) As an ensemble comedy, it’s just adequate — platitudes with romantic-comedy in which eight people — including Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy — pair off and act out scenarios from that Steve Harvey relationship guide “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.” But Henson makes a case for more movies to take a chance on her charisma. The woman’s a star. (PG-13; runs through Nov. 14)

Warm Bodies

(Comcast Movie Collections: All New Movies) A zombie date flick that has its “Twilight” and makes fun of it too, thanks to a cheeky screenplay and tart direction by Jonathan Levine (“50/50”).

(Unrated; runs through Oct. 31)
